EXECUTIVE ACTION (1973 U.S.) D: DAVID MILLER W: DALTON TRUMBO/DONALD FREED/MARK LANE P: EDWARD LEWIS/DAN BESSIE
This great and unfairly neglected thriller shows a conspiracy that could have existed against JFK, and how it might have been carried out. Burt Lancaster, Robert Ryan and Will Geer star as right wing conspirators who have a team of riflemen (including Dick Miller) trained for the assassination, and set-up Lee Harvey Oswald to take the fall. It uses footage of Kennedy`s speeches to illustrate why certain people would want him dead, and ends with a list of people connected with the events that mysteriously ended up dead. It`s pretty convincing and way more entertaining than Oliver Stone`s later JFK (which starred Donald Sutherland, who initially developed this apparently). With John Anderson, Ed Lauter, Walter Brooke and Robert Kamen.
